Aspects of designing and evaluating seasonal-to-interannual Arctic sea-ice prediction systems

Article English OPEN
Hawkins, Ed; Tietsche, Steffen; Day, Jonathan J.; Melia, Nathanael; Haines, Keith; Keeley, Sarah;

Using lessons from idealised predictability experiments, we discuss some issues and perspectives on the design of operational seasonal to inter-annual Arctic sea-ice prediction systems. We first review the opportunities to use a hierarchy of different types of experimen... View more
